Those of you who think that is a picture of Charles I take a careful look. If you don't know that it is the legendary Jimi Hendrix - well it is. The pub is acquiring that status itself. As well as being a must visit pub when doing the Leeds- Stalybridge beer train it is also a great local music venue.
When you get to Huddersfield you have a great choice of pubs. A friend who works in the town said that the beer in the Kings Head was really good. After an hour I could not really disagree. We arrived on Saturday teatime and the place was already rocking with people enjoying good beer and a convivial atmosphere.
There was a fine selection of local beers on draught when we were there. The Ringmaster was interesting as was the Golcar mild.
Town centre drinking is not for everyone but if you are in Huddersfield then I recommend that you call into the King's Head and sample what they have to offer.
